Event Description: 

Please join us for a live performance from Connecticut Forest & Park Association’s latest New England Trail Artist-in-Residence, Ben Cosgrove. Ben composes and performs music inspired by New England landscapes, and will spend the next 12 months writing and performing music inspired by the New England Trail (NET)

Ben performs regularly all over the country, writes scores for films, plays, radio, and television, and has produced several well-received albums of original instrumental work. The strongest forces guiding Ben’s compositions  are his deep interests in landscape, place, and ecology.   

The New England Trail is a 215 mile National Scenic Trail that travels through 41 communities in CT and MA.

The New England Trail Artist-in-Residence program is a project of Connecticut Forest & Park Association, the Appalachian Mountain Club and the National Park Service. This event is co-sponsored by Wesleyan University’s Earth & Environmental Science Department.
